Presented is our new model of an example of the classically elegant Herreshoff
designed and built, 43' sailing class, the NYYC 30. (New York Yacht Club 30). Just 18 NYYC 30s were ever built starting in
1905. They are widely regarded as one of the most famous designs of the legendary yacht designer and builder, Nathanial Greene
Herreshoff, the "Wizard of Bristol," the NYYC 30 immediately became one of the most coveted racing sailboats in the world.
Our model of the Herreshoff "NYYC 30" is built to the same high standards of all of our models. She
is constructed from scratch by skilled craftsmen, plank on frame just like the original and has been approved by the Herreshoff

HISTORY: During the "Golden Age of Sailing's" heyday, the 1920s, many of yachting's
elite had a passion for the sleek, fast, wooden sailing yachts boasting enormous sails, vigorously contesting one another
for trophies and fame.
The grace and speed of the gaff-rigged NYYC 30 attracted America's finest skippers and crews starting
in 1905. When the 30s raced hundreds of spectators lined racecourses.
The NYYC 30s still compete today. In the Mediterranean, an area experiencing a surge of classic boat
racing popularity, a NYYC 30 is excelling against the competition. There is currently a fleet of four NYYC 30s still racing
in America. Of the 18 NYYC 30s built, remarkably at a rate of one a week at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in 1905,
12 are rumored to be still sailing; a testament to the exceptional design and construction of Herreshoff.
The design of the NYYC 30 is well engineered and results in a very light
boat for a 40 plus footer. Her displacement is just 16,000 pounds with the vast majority of its displacement in the lead ballast
keel. This allows for lots of sail area and exceptional all around performance in light winds as well as a strong breeze.
this outstanding model now! What a great gift for a person who has everything! What a perfect accessory to your home or office!
What a great conversation piece!
